- Wedding: May 2015 - The beach.
My FI and I want to have a beach wedding in either Oregon or Maine. We’d prefer if it was just us and make it an elopement, but my guilty heart thinks that we should just invite our parents to the ceremony and maybe our best friends. So total would be possibly 8 people. All our parents are well off and have lots of flight miles and a few of our family members work for Marriott, so they would be able to travel and stay very cheaply. Do we have to pay for the accomodations for our family and 2 friends? Or is that only for the wedding party? (which we don’t have) Since we would most likely get the family discount on the Marriott hotels (which all of them will most likely be staying) should we pay for the accomodations? Also, if we have a reception at a restaraunt afterwards, do we pay for everyone’s meal?
